Keemun is an exquisite tea-producing district of Qimen County in Anhui Province in Eastern China. This shiny black offering is considered to be elite Chinese tea. The leaves are slightly twisted, jet-black and produce a rich coppery brew. You’ll notice a raison-like taste, often categorised as “winey” which is very characteristic of keemun tea.
So too, a lovely Rich Tea biscuit taste, just like the smell of a whippet’s head… (you may only understand this comparison if you're northern).
